What's the name of that sheet or how do you search it. Cause those look sweet and less flimsy.

Is that "after" then "before"?


Is yours a DIY, Javy, or did you buy a kit, and if so, which one? Looks great!

Thanx scipio!!! Yeah it's a DIY I used gutter guard that I got from lowes. It comes in a roll easy to work with its made of PVC.
Some zip ties and zip tie anchors.

Those slab grille looks nice but for $400? No thanks.

Looking into either the Drake inserts or even the DIY method with using gutter guard.

Just finished the DIY (Gutter Guard) insert yesterday. Quickest upgrade ever! I think it took me all of 15 minutes to fully complete. Makes the front end look great!

Hey Spyder...I am from Long Island as well. Love your Jeep man...what is that bumper? It looks sweet. Also, where did you get that front face from?

This might be my first order from Northridge.

Cool

Did mine today. Fingers are sore from using the tin snips on the stainless steel mesh... as well as using my thumbnails to scrape off the adhesive backing on the zip tie anchors. I'm happy. The result is subtle, but sturdy. Should help protect the radiator against most rocks/debris. Since the anchors are well in place, if I want to change to a different style of mesh (or paint it a different color), it should be easy to remove and then reinstall.

Items used: 100-count 4" black zip ties ($2), 4x 10-count white zip tie anchors - 1" square (~$8 total), 3x 36"x5" black stainless steel mesh gutter guard called "Metal Lock-In Gutter Guard" ($9), zip tie gun ($6), two tubes epoxy resin ($9), 7" Tin Snips ($5).

Total project cost: $39 and I've got some new tools, to boot!

Poison spider brawler lite plate, plus skid plate, I live on the south fork and work out in Queens, if you ever want to check it out let me know
Not sure what you mean by front face, the grill?

I like the RR kit, I little tweaking and it fits perfect-looks perfect, just remember nuts go on the top and make room for them by cutting black plastic radiator cover (you will never see this mod as the grill covers it) let's see it protects the auto trans cooler, power steering cooler, AC condenser, radiator. Well worth $50.
